“Get there early”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

One of my colleagues is a member of a live New Orleans blues band that entertains regularly at Taytro's. I wanted to hear his gig; he advised getting there somewhat early, as the place fills up. He was right! There would have been a wait for the tables, but since there were only two of us, we sat at the bar and had a good view of the group. This place needs a bigger facility, but they are very friendly and attentive to every customer's needs, even with a full house. It's really cool that they have live music of this caliber, but when they brought out the kitchen manager to play some of the most amazing harmonica work with the band, I was stunned. They are so friendly and casual, but all you would want in high-quality food--I'm told they have all fresh food, and it tastes like it. The prices were reasonable, too.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Cozy atmosphere, delicious food, and good service. What more could you ask for? A breath of fresh air for a small town with little diversity.

“Excellent food and drinks, reasonable prices.”
Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

Great New Orleans style atmosphere in the little town of Festus. I had the 'shrimpalaya' which was a mix of the BBQ shrimp and jambalaya. It was good but a bit on the salty side. House salad and poppyseed house dressing was excellent. The atmosphere was great with a nice band playing on Saturday. Definitely worth a visit or two.

I've been there twice. Great meal both times. Try the BBQ Shrimp jambalaya, its awesome. It's a little bohemian, but you will love it !

“Try it - you'll like it.”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

Family had dinner at Taytro's tonight. I had the special, Chicken Ackbar. Dellicious with smashed potatoes. Sons had the crawfish etoufee and jambalaya. Husband had shrimp etoufee. Also, had the sampler appetizer - wings and gator bites were very good. Can't say enough about how good everything tasted. Wonderful atmosphere with the live music - playing songs that we all know. Saw several people we know too. Definitely a place to go for something a little bit different.
